That's the main idea. As the program is idle during benchmarking, and is pretty small in size, i think it won't have a noticable effect on the performance.

-edit-
Pifast (10milion digits) confirms it: difference between a normal run, and run from within the benchmark tool is 0.07s.

But what if say you wanted to run Return to Castle " in 1200x1600 as well? Would you be able to program the sotware to make those display adjustments? I'm not asking for everything, I'm just curious how far you were going to take it?
Depending on the benchmark, it's possible. For example, it's perfectly possible to launch 3D mark in different resolutions, but i don't know whether this is possible with every game/app. I think the first version of the program i will only include settings to test cpu/motherboard (3D benches at low res) and one to test the vidcard capabilities (3D at 1024*768).

If ppl like the program, i'll try to include several options to bench (low/high resolution, FSAA, Antisoptric filtering).

Ter Angreal had a nice set of Windows tweaks which i'll try to implement too.

Man you could sell the program to review sites? Or will it be freeware? If so thank you, either way thank you.
After the first working version is finished, it will be open source java. It's free.

Quote:
I think it'll be very useful, although as benchmarks become unpopular, will the program be capable of having it's parametters changed in that respect?
Java allows programmers to make a very flexible program. If i can it working as I've got planned, adding a new benchmark to the tool will be a child's play.

Small update:
3Dmark03 works, but the professional version will be needed. This won't be a problem for most reviewsites / serieus benchers i hope. Will try to work around it later on.
Pifast: works
Superpi: seems te be impossible to integrate in the tool :/

Edit:
I have a GF4 MX440, so i can only run the first game test. Would someone with a Dx9 vidcard & 3Dmark03 PRO launch 3Dmark with the option "-verbose" ("3dmark03.exe -verbose") and send me the verbose***.txt file it has generated after running a FULL benchmark? Thx

i think you're command 'verbose' is incorrect

Stop editing your posts damnit, i'm curious.

The -verbose option ONLY works if you got the full (registerd)version of 3Dmark03.
